Part of some lettering for a logo I'm working on. Started off with a thick Chinese calligraphy brush to get the general shapes and then moved onto pencil for the details. I'm working on the vectoring now, but I'm not sure about the top of the 'st' ligature. The goal is to keep it clean and simple so I don't want it too swirly or decorative, but the junction seems a bit abrupt at the minute.

keep pushing you'll get it, good start.
Nice Claire ! ;-) Has something from Candy Script, especially in the T...
great style, Claire. simplify that s-t connection. get rid of that loop, make it simpler:) i like the i a lot.
Thanks for the comments!
@Stan, thanks for the encouraging words!
@Francis, merci ! Yeah I noticed some overall similarities in the ends of the strokes as it's the natural shape of the brush.. Making sure to keep it clearly different enough as I'm vectoring!
@Claudiu, thanks - glad you like it. Trying out various options for the st, will see how it goes!
beautiful Claire..can't wait to see the vectorized version...
I also think the st connection is probably not necessary. Beautiful type (again & always!)!!
The ligature could really add a lot to this "twist" idea, depending on how you do it. Maybe if the top of the s went right into the ligature, rather than having a definite end?
Very lovely and fluid motion going on here!
I quite like the s-t connection, it gives twist a twist :-)
Thanks for the feedback! Really appreciate it.
Hmm yeah the ligature: so far I've got 2 variations and a third version without.. I do like that it adds an extra touch (or should I say, a twist - well put, Milosz!) but will see how it works out in context. More coming soon!
Very nice Claire!
Hey Michael, cheers!

Trying to decide between these 2 logo variations with web designer Rob Turlinckx. The aim is something friendly, clean and modern with some personalised details. The s-t in the first one has a bit of a 'twist' to it, but the second creates a subtle heart shape (passion, care, etc.) Feedback appreciated!
